Synopsis

Creatures of the Deep An Interactive Journey Through the Deepest Ocean Layers by John Woodward

Creatures of the Deep takes readers on an incredible 3D journey through the depths of the ocean. With the use of pop-ups, fold-out landscapes and stunning illustrations, this interactive book reveals the strange but wondrous residents of this dark and inhospitable world. Each of the ocean's three zones - sunlit zone, twilight zone, and dark zone - is explored in turn, but the book's focus is on the deep ocean which begins some 200 m (600 ft) below the surface. Colourful, fact-filled pages reveal the ocean's dramatic deep-sea landscapes, the thousands of fascinating species that live there, the people who study them, and their latest spectacular discoveries. With details of ocean exploration, from early pioneers to modern-day research, and information on threats to this fragile habitat, Creatures of the Deep is a fun and engaging introduction to life at the bottom of the ocean.
